What is the Settings component?

Settings

The Settings component allows you to configure general settings for each of the mailbox components (for example, display, and language preferences), mail settings (setup, autoresponders, signature, allow and block lists, and forwarding options), and spam settings.

Preferences

User Interface Specify the language, time zone, date format, and browser options.
Mailbox View Determine how mail is displayed in the mailbox, for example, whether the preview pane is displayed, how requests for delivery confirmation are handled, the number of messages that are displayed on a page, and whether displayed messages opened by Webmail obey the settings of your browser. In addition, you can register this webmail app so that it is opened whenever you click an email link anywhere on the web.
Displaying Messages Determine how messages are displayed, for example, whether double-clicking a message in the email view will open it in a new window, whether the message is displayed in html or plain text, how attached images are handled, and whether the next message is displayed when you move or delete a message.
Composing Messages Set various defaults for composing and forwarding messages, such as the default font, whether the message requests a return receipt, whether a signature is automatically added to messages, as well as the options that you want to enable for checking spelling.
Address Book Configure the default settings for the Address Book, such as the sorting order and number of contacts displayed on a page.
Special Folders Choose which folders are used to store Drafts, Sent or deleted messages (Trash).
Server Settings Contains more advanced settings that control how messages are treated by the email server.
Other Accounts Allows you to add other accounts whose mail will be displayed in the Webmail mailbox.
